Father Daughter Moments

Before we were all audibly assaulted by Aerosmith’s train-wreck of a performance at the 2020 Grammy’s there was a sweet antithetical Grammy’s moment between Camila Cabello and (not Shawn Mendez) her Father.

I am such a sucker for Father/Daughter moments, and as soon as Dad’s cry… we all cry, and this performance was no exception.

I mentioned to Steph that we would likely be hearing this at several 2020 and beyond weddings during the Father-Daughter dance. Along with the usual suspects.

Top Father-Daughter Dance Songs:

  1. Butterfly Kisses – Bob Carlisle
  2. My Little Girl – Tom Mcgraw
  3. Stealing Cinderella – Chuck Wicks
  4. I Loved Her First – Heartland

These may seem cliche’ but they are cliche’ for a reason, because when they hit…. out come the water-works. As a Father of 2 girls, I honestly can’t keep it together, and neither can a lot of the guests. There is something special and moving about that particular moment. It is a beautiful sight, and we feel so honoured to be invited into those vulnerable moments. Our hope is we can do justice to the emotions, the pride, and the joy of those moments and create a photograph that further bond that amazing and unique Father/Daughter relationship.

We can’t decide if a Father/Daughter first look is more touching than a Father/Daughter dance…. but we will let you decide.

Here is a collection of Father/Daughter first looks and Father/Daughter dances.

Keep a tissue handy.

Hold in those tears! You got this.

Alright, maybe just a little cry will help.
